Deal alert - cheap suit

I cruise the classifieds all the time looking for deals, found this suit. The only thing I can't determine is what the scuffing is from, the marking seems way too minor for an actual crash, so it may be from a <5mph off or just handling it roughly (sitting on the ground a lot, etc.)

Either way this is a good deal for a solid suit. Perfect for anyone looking for track gear on a budget.

I should clarify that this isn't mine.

Alpinestars CR suit size 44, apparently almost new. Really good deal, normally I'd buy and flip this.

That is a great price on the alpinestars cr suit. Would look like an uncoordinated colored zebra though

I'm 6'2" and wear a 46. Just for size reference I guess.

Diggy, Alpinestars run small. For reference I'm a euro 54/US 44. In an A*s I'd be a 56/46. I'm 6', 180lbs. I'd reckon you'd be a 56/46 or an A*s 58/48. Try a few on to see how they fit.

Suit deal alert:

Rev'It TT suit. This was Rev'Its premiere suit from 2009. Rev'It has a quality consistent with Dainese. I really liked my Replica suit from the same year (lower tier). Because the brand is less known, this suit will go for very cheap. Rev'It does run large so I wear one size down (in Dainese and Alpinestars I'm a 50, but in Rev'It I need a 48.) This is a size 52 so figure it will fit you if you're normally a 54.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Revit-Racing...-/152198570089

Held makes very high end gear but usually has little or no distribution in the US. This Held Slade suit is super nice and it too will probably go for cheap; figure in about $120 for a cleaning at Anthony's Leather Works to make it look like new. No idea on their sizing but I bet it's true. Size 54.

Alpinestars Race Replica suit, lightly crashed once and also some Supertech R boots - amazing deal. If I weren't a broke fool and fit in a 52 I'd pick this up myself.

Haha thanks. I'm probably overestimating how many riders even want to try out the track or would consider a 1 piece, but I like sharing good buys when I can.

Suit-a-Rama - if you're a 56, 58, or 60, lots of potential here - promo Dainese 1 and 2 piece suits: http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/mpo/5802519346.html
